Betty Blue Eyes, a musical adaptation of the film A Private Function, has returned to the West End, and we have the photos to prove it!

Set in 1947, British citizens continue to suffer under the post World War II restrictions of food rationing, a freezing winter, and high unemployment. Still, there is a spark of light on the horizon: the marriage of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip. In a small community in Yorkshire, the local dignitaries come together to illegally raise a pig for a celebratory banquet, all the while their constituents struggle to make ends meet. Will Betty the Pig split the community apart? Or will she bring them all together in a moment of celebration?

Check out photos of the West End revival below!
